County Treasurer Warns of Property Tax Scam

The Bernalillo County Treasurer warns residents of an ongoing scam in which tax notices sent to residents threaten to have property seized. The letters claim to be from the “Tax Processing Unit” with “Bernalillo County County” and state that the federal tax authorities are seeking funds, and without prompt payment, taxpayers will have their properties immediately seized. The scam notification claims the recipients owe nearly $3,500 in unpaid taxes. No deadline date, contact information, or address to send payments are provided. The bogus document reads it is from “Bernalillo County County” which is clearly a mistake. Taxpayers should call the Bernalillo County Treasurer’s Office at 505-468-7031 or visit: with any questions about their tax bill.
